    Sad news. It was a drug overdose. He apparently was found with a needle still in his arm.

    I didn't read about the OD but did read they found him dead. One of my favorite actors.

    So bummed about this. A great actor, and way too young.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I realize today as I've read a bit more about him do I realize how little I've seen of his work. I need to see more clearly.

    There's a lot of his work I haven't seen, but I did a quick scan on imdb earlier and found 12 of his movies I have seen. One I'd recommend that I don't think enough people have seen is 'State and Main'. He's the lead in a gentle comedy (directed by David Mamet) that also features William H. Macy, Alec Baldwin, Julia Stiles, S.J. Parker and a bunch of others. The movie deals with the general havoc caused when a movie production invades a small town.

    Probably my favorite P.S. Hoffman movie is 'Doubt', largely because the underlying issue of how people react to change is one I've dealt with extensively.

    I always felt Hoffman never got the credit he deserved as an actor. One of the few from this era that could could be considered as good as Deniro or Pacino were in their prim and should have gotten more leading roles. He was good in everything he ever did. ****, he even nailed his smaller roles like in Moneyball or Scent of a Woman.

    The Master is his finest film, IMO. Truly one of the best actors of his generation.

    He was only 46? Goodness.

    I always like him as an actor even if he wouldn't play Scott Hatteburg.

    Re: Phillip Seymour Hoffman Dead

    Famous deaths invite hyperbole. The news that Philip Seymour Hoffman was discovered dead today in an apartment bathroom, with a syringe sticking out of his arm, seems like an occasion to overreact with some exaggerated summary of his career—something like "most talented and kaleidoscopic actor of his time."

    Except, in this case, the compliment isn't hyperbolic at all. It's just an accurate description, as true yesterday as it is today. And the competition isn't even that close.

    Sad. He had little kids. I read yesterday that he had stayed clean from drugs for quite some time before relapsing in the past couple of years.

    He was a fantastic actor and performer. Even in small roles he nailed his part.
